Im pretty sure a better road car does not exist. The upgraded mechanics wrapped in a body that came custom from the factory...its perfect!

Youve probably got the seats figured out, or will by the end of the trip. My suggestion is to keep them stock appearing with a bit more support, as subtle as the rest of the car.

Nice car, Charley

Riv is awesome, very understated just as the pics show. Killer ride.

BTW: I found your twin holding court on the other side of the building.

Jeff Hayes (never met him) has a set of 8 series BMW (E31) seats recovered to match the originals in his '64. Don't know how much you plan on putting people in the back seat but they are not sliding, only power forward and backward.
I'm putting 96-99 Acura CL seats in mine and I've seen references to Lexus SC430 seats and late model GTO seats in there as well.

I had a set of 2005 GTO seats in my car for a few years and they are awesome as well. 8 way power and they flip forward with the flip of a lever to let Greg into the back seat if needed.

They are wide and were a TIGHT fit into my car but should have tons of room for them in the Riv.
